Is this a Windows Forms project or a Web Application project?

The former solution involves an event handler. The latter would need Javascript. In either case there is a solution.

Since you mentioned VB.NET I'm going to assume it's a web application. In that case, here's a jQuery snippet that will do the trick for you:
$("#[YourControlId]").on({
  keydown: function(e) {
    if (e.which === 32)
      return false;
  },
  change: function() {
    this.value = this.value.replace(/\s/g, "");
  }
});
